At Karori Chiropractic we are ACC registered. If you have recently had an injury, you may be eligible to open an ACC claim and pay less for chiropractic care.
Opening a claim is a relatively simple process and can be done on the same day as your appointment. The chiropractor must assess the injury to verify if a claim can be made.
You may already be covered if you previously opened a claim with a different health professional.
